He'll be back because he's too weak to truly stand his ground.

 

This is true. He's very passive aggressive.

I tend to agree but what makes you so sure? He's 37 years old, if he doesn't want to be there, he won't be there. At this point I'm 60/40 he's back. The riff is real. 

 

 

 

Didn't say I was sure, there are very few sure things in life. It is just my opinion, I know its boring and doesn't generate a lot of discussion but that's not my angle. I think they work things out, and I don't think he's ready to retire of have a messy holdout situation. 

 

Yes the rift (not riff, that's a musical term) is real, but it doesn't mean the relationship is over.

Have either of you ever met and talked with him?


Doubt it, so this is just opinion based on bits of info you get mostly spun by media and based on reports from unnamed sources.

C'mon Steve, he's always been passive aggressive. Why do you think he leaks this crap? Because he's too afraid to go to management or ownership? He's always pulling this crap. Him or his people leak shizz so he doesn't have to deal with it. And meanwhile he babyfaces and Shakespeares off the deal like he has no idea what is going on.

actually, I think the team leaked it. 

On the radio, just before the draft, Mark Schelereth read the text exchange between him and Aaron. Aaron specifically asked Mark who leaked it. It was pretty clear that Aaron didn't leak it, was surprised it was leaked and wanted to know who was responsible.

In addition, the info that's come out was that GB and DEN had a confirmed deal in place and the GB GM got cold feet and pulled the offer.

I seriously doubt that. There's nothing in it for GB to leak it. They know they'll never get equal value. So give the guy what he wants and keep it hush hush.

I hear you, but I have no reason to believe that Mark would lie and he read the texts. I really think the leak came from the team because they wanted to make him look bad before being "forced" to trade him. As I said, the deal was in place, but the GB GM backed out. If it had gone through, then GB could say, "well, he forced his way out and he leaked it." making the team look less like the bad guy

Yes I know he wants out. Yes I know Denver is 1 of 3 teams he would go to. Green Bay will let him hold out the season before trading him.

What good would that do GB though? He'll be a year older and have even less value. If it's him walking or 3+ first round picks, what do you think they'd do?

I believe Green Bay will make a statement and say your getting 40 million to play if not we will play Love.

It's a business, they don't care about making statements. They need to do what's best for the franchise. Letting Rogers walk or sit does nothing for anyone, especially at his age. Do you really believe they'd slit their own throat just to "make a statement"?

It's "Rodgers".

Exactly! He's not walking and they aren't giving him away for nothing. That's a 6 win team at best without Rogers.

The Brett Favre situation is the elephant in the room here.  No matter what Gut might want to do with Rodgers, nobody in the Packer organization wants a repeat of the ugly Favre drama, and we're halfway down that road already.  Rodgers will retire a Packer, will be an ambassador for the Packers, and will have a life long association with the Packers.  At least that's what the team hopes.  Murphy's job is to play diplomat here and try to smooth things out so people move forward on good terms.  In other words, I think this is going to be a long drawn out process with a lot going on behind closed doors.  In the end, Rodgers may decide that he simply wants to finish his career somewhere else.  The Packers will try to make that process happen as cleanly as possible, which might be difficult with Rodgers.  But at least he isn't airing all his dirty laundry in front of the media the way Favre did.

but WHY draft a QB in the first round when your HoF QB still has 3-6 years left of high level play?

Rodgers will definitely be traded, or retire, or hold out....unless he remains the Packers starting QB and takes the field.....

 

And round goes the drama.....NFL style

 

And it is Rodgers with a D, amazing people could learn how to spell Favre (which sounds like Farv) but can't get this one straight.

 

And since we're talking Favre, here is what he thinks
